Dispute Resolution Commission Quarterly Meeting

The North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission (NCDRC) held its quarterly meeting on March 1, 2019, at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham.  The meeting, led by the Commission’s chair, the Honorable William A. Webb, was extremely productive as well as informative.  Each of the NCDRC’s numerous committees reported on work completed this past quarter including, but not limited to, proposing a new draft version of Standard VII, approving courses for CME credit, and reviewing multiple applications for certification. The NCDRC also adopted a new policy regarding mediators responding to complaints, and is making plans to celebrate Conflict Resolution Week this coming October.  The NCDRC constantly strives to better the practice of mediation within our courts by providing certified mediators with the tools they need to succeed.
